Every year, Aspen's music festival, mostly classical, runs for 2 months. Students from around the world attend together with many eminent musicians. Concerts are held during the day (listen in the sun with a picnic) and during the evening across several venues. Wonderful.

We had tickets to see Conrad Tao, a young piano genius, who performed at the music school venue theater and we were impressed with the sound quality and the beauty of the setting. We will return for another concert I am sure. This is special!
